NYU's Environmental Health Clinic Issues Green Rx

NYU's Environmental Health Clinic Issues Green Rx

Dr. Natalie Jeremijenko runs NYU's Environmental Health Clinic. The clinic treats symptoms caused by environmental maladies like contaminated land, polluted air, and dirty storm runoff. The clinic's patients can also come in to discuss personal environmental anxieties that may be caused by climate change and worries about air pollution.

Dr. Green, as Jeremijenko should be called, is an Australian artist, designers, and engineer, who embraces the physician role by wearing a lab coat and writing prescriptions for window treatments, sunflowers, or tadpoles, as tools to heal environmental troubles.

One patient had a case of lead contamination on his vacant lot. So Dr. Jeremijenko prescribed sunflowers and chemical agent EDTA to turn the soil lead-free.

The clinic is run by NYU's art department (not the public health program); but patients do see real results. Would you consider getting a check-up at an environmental health clinic?

I suppose this field will be more popular in the future.

Most of the advice is probably good and even useful (when is a sunflower not a good thing?.) But like with the cautions about using too much EDTA you've really got to be sure the 'patient' gets that this is as much art as science - so I find the doctor aspect a little creepy.
